What Leipzig Boss Nagelsmann said after their 2-1 victory over Atletico Madrid

Julian Nagelsmann was pleased with the impressive success of RB Leipzig’s Champions League over Atletico Madrid but was keen to turn his attention quickly to Paris Saint-Germain’s semi-final opponents.

“There are great emotions for my club, for my team,” the 33-year-old told BT Sport. “I’m very proud of my team. They did very well, and I’m happy as well.

“But as a manager, you have to look forward and look at the next game, prepare the next game, the next opponent.

After Tyler Adams’ 88th-minute shot – deflected past Jan Oblak – clinched a 2-1 win Thursday, Leipzig reached the last four of Europe’s elite club competition.

After having Dani Olmo’s opener cancelled out by Joao Felix, who won and converted a penalty within the last 20 minutes, the Bundesliga side was good value for their performance.

The victory is certainly the greatest moment in the short history of Leipzig, but head coach Nagelsmann admitted there was no time to celebrate.

“We did not have a lot of time to celebrate this victory, but perhaps we will drink a beer together in the hotel and then tomorrow we’ll focus on PSG.”
